With the huge history of soccer and all the evolution and change that the game has seen there are so many different ways the game has been played and a large part of that is the evolution of formations. So today I pose the question of what you believe to be the best formation ever. And let me say I know that there is no definitive answer and that it all depends on situation and personnel available, however, it is still an interesting discussion to be had. In my opinion the 3-5-2 may be the most balanced formation, given you have players to fit the system. However formations such as the 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 are much more traditional and versatile. And I understand that all these formations have much deeper details, tactics, and nuances but we can get into those if you are interested. But to begin, let me know what you believe to be the best formation.
